Lee Chang-dong Sør-Korea, 2018

Matthew Martens's rating of the film Burning

Rather than sweat fidelity to Murakami, Faulkner, or Fitzgerald, Lee, in his most galvanic feature since Secret Sunshine, treats them the same way he treats everyday objects and facial expressions, siphoning a charge from each--while gulping great gobs of current from Steven Yeun's yawn--to power a battery of symbol and suggestion, on which his protagonist's hunger and need greedily feed.
